Never a thought kept to himself

Charles C.W. Cooke: "Please be quiet, Mr. President."
When the government is as big as it is, we will inevitably be forced to care what he thinks. But the attention that this man insists upon bringing upon himself transcends that inevitability, and ranges into the realm of narcissism and vaingloriousness.
I think it's some mental defect from his military school days, the need to climb to top of the pile, thump one's chest, and then kick in the teeth anyone who tries to throw you off.  It's only making the job of governing more difficult for everyone around him.

Another theory - he keeps baiting the national press, who continue to go completely apeshit over everything he says and tweets. The byproduct of this is what I like the best - every time they react like that, they add a few thousand people to the ledger who are now aware of their rampant bias.

Although I applaud finally having someone who fights back against the biased press, I don't think Trump's approach helps him to move legislation. I can easily see Republicans turn on him when they're sick of being called names.

You chose the wrong "Godfather" clip for Trump. There are no Don Vitos or Sonnys in this crime family, only Fredos.
